The Missions: San Francisco and San José

Unless the mission is oriented by charity, that is, unless it springs from a profound act of divine love, it risks being reduced to mere philanthropic and social activity...Consequently, being missionaries means loving God with all one's heart, even to the point, if necessary, of dying for him. - Pope Benedict XVI

Thanks to Pete Benedetto, the following photo was possible. Six months after Pete and I hauled the pvc piping and water tanks from the capital, the community of Rincón has begun their aqueduct project according to the plans and the piping Pete gave them. BTW, if anyone has Pete’s e-mail, I’d like to send him more info, but I’ve lost most my e-mail addresses recently. (This could be why you haven’t heard from me—but most likely I’ve been lazy.)
